Roman Villa at Bignor

I've often passed a sign to the Roman Villa at Bignor and a couple of days ago, I decided to go visit.  It's a small exhibition but nonetheless rather interesting.  It was discovered in 1811 by a farmer, George Tupper, who hit a large stone when ploughing... and from there, as they say, the rest is history

The view from the ruins

and inside with amazing mosaics..

a small field with a few Cows and their calves

and on the way out.. an obliging Common Whitethroat..

They loved their dolphin mosaics! Wish that was near me, we have a massive villa at Southwell, but only a tiny bit of it on view.
